He could have used 2 fewer tiles if he cut the corners diagonally and shared them in opposites... I would totally have been on that!

I second SneakyBuffalo - I'm a reformed Leasing Agent in Chicago and have seen a lot of this city & have never seen anything like this.

Oh why why why cover up that gorgeous wood? I'm not digging the country-chic. I imagine the original with white walls and accents similar to the ones in the final and I'm in heaven.
*sigh* to each hir own I guess.

House centipedes feed on spiders, bedbugs, termites, cockroaches, silverfish, ants, and other household arthropods... I'd rather have the centipedes.

I guess it's a good message overall but does it really apply to a home has not been finished? I've been living in a low-budget construction project for 2 years and just wish I could be satisfied when I walk in the door - all I see are undone projects, subfunctional jerry-rigs thrown together to meet my daily needs and thousands of dollars and hundreds of hours of weekend and evening labor ahead of me before I can be done. :(
I didn't mean for this to turn into a gripe fest but to top it all off it's an apartment building and often the needs of the rest property get in the way of my own. *sob*

Can I run away from home?

I'm sorry to the owner of the Etsy store but you can (maybe) buy the jars for <$1 each here:

I've been drooling over that bed since you posted it in the Metal Beds for under $1000 post. Also, that chair DIY is going to be done on our ikea chairs... oh yes, it will.
We're finishing the bsement we live in and we have painted a herringbone pattern on our floor. I'd love to share the progress with you, I think you'd dig the floor.

I'd like to see a round rug that reflects some color from your unfinished picture frame.

Have you considered incorporating a sound dampening technique in your decor?

I know a cafe that hung burlap coffee sacks from the ceiling to reduce sound from the stage bouncing around. I couldn't find a picture but the look was pretty cool.
